Set alphabetical as default in VS property editors?

Is there any way to change the default view in Visual Studio's property
editors from categorical to alphabetized? I'm getting awfully tired of
clicking the A-Z icon every time I open a collection editor. Thanks

Which version are you on? I'm on 1.1 and there is no default view to check
in Options under Tools that I could find.

However, I don't think it's needed. Try this:
1. Open a windows project.
2. Click on a form.
3. Save the project.
4. Click the alphabetical icon on the Properties box

Close down the IDE without saving (obviously, save prior to hitting the
aphabetical, as listed above).

Open it back up and it should keep the alphabetical setting. I tried it
using the steps above for both alphabetical and categorized. Each time it
held the last clicked, regardless of saving.

I'm using Version 2.0. The Properties dockable windows remembers your last
choice. But open something that uses a VS collection editor (like the Nodes
property of a TreeView. When the Collection Editor opens, it storw the
Categorized view, rather than the Alphabetical view, and it doesn't remember
your last choice.
